Trivia

When Tracy Jordan (Tracy Morgan ) is crying about his high school dissection trauma, saying he wasn't a baby, he was chicken, Milton Green (Alan Alda) says "Crying about babies and chickens? I thought this was a comedy show." This is a reference to the final episode of Alda's M*A*S*H (1972) series. In that episode, entitled _"M*A*S*H (1972)" (Goodbye, Farewell, and Amen {#11.16})_ the Alan Alda character Hawkeye Pierce spends much of the episode in a psychiatric hospital, having witnessed a traumatic event. He remembers a Korean woman killing a chicken, so as to not be heard by enemy soldiers. Upon treatment, however, he recalls the truth - that it was a baby. Much like Tracy's character, he cries when asked if it was a chicken. He says "Oh, my God! Oh, my God! I didn't mean for her to kill it. I did not - I - I just wanted it to be quiet. It was - it was a baby! She, she smothered her own baby!!" See more »

We Want Kidneys!
27 December 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the twenty-second and final episode of the third season of 30 Rock and it's one of the best episodes this season. It's a good finale, but I liked the episode more because of the spoof of the charity song, "We Are the World." The film boasts many guest stars including many musical stars such as Adam Levine of Maroon 5, Elvis Costello, Michael McDonald, Mary J Blige, and so on. The song they created was actually very, very good.

In this episode, "Kidney Now!," Jack learns his father needs a kidney transplant so he decides to hold a charity event raising the money for his transplant. Meanwhile, Tracy is asked to speak at a graduation ceremony at his old high school.

Overall, this is a great episode. It is very musical and still quite funny. Some people may find the episode quite selfish, but I found it quite funny and well-written. I rate this episode 9/10.
